PICU Day 5

One step forward...two steps back.
Today Ben had another fever.
He just isn't feeling that great.
They sent all new cultures again:
blood
urine
trach
His PS has been weaned the last couple of days.
They didn't touch it today because he just didn't look good.
Tonight they have increased his PS back up.
His lungs are wheezy and he's not moving great air.
More nebulizer treatments.
He's just plum tired.
So am I.
He was nice enough to share his bed with me this afternoon.
I snuck in for a long, cozy nap.
The good news?
His oxygen is only at 30% and he's holding!
GO BEN!

Get better Ben! Chloe sends loads of hugs and kisses. That always makes her mom better, so she's hoping it will help Ben too! xo
